Subject Verb Agreement Practice Act

October 9th, 2021

Let`s identify the subject first. What is implemented? Changes. The phrase “for the new and improved ACT Writing section” is a prepositional sentence beginning with the preposition “for”. The prepositional sentence describes the changes that are implemented. See how the ACT can fool you into placing a singular noun, “section,” right in front of the verb. What`s less fun about this sentence? The “consequences”. That is why the theme is in the second section entitled “Consequences”. The verb “is” corresponds to the subject “Consequences”. Since we have a plural meeting and a singular verb, there is an error in the subject-verb concordance. This is the corrected version of the sentence: in this example, the verb, since the subject, the book, is singular, the verb must also be singular.

Collective names are names that involve more than one person (for example. B a group, a team, a family, etc.). Although they involve more than one person, nouns themselves are singular and require singular verbs. The phrase “someone who describes” is the only one that maintains the correct subject-verb concordance and also corresponds to the rest of the sentence. Let`s first rearrange the sentence so that the subject is in front of the verb. What`s between the pillows? Change and an old pen. After we`ve reorganized, the sentence should be, “Change up and an old pen sits between the pillows on my couch.” The theme is both change and an old pen; Therefore, the verb must be in the plural. This is the corrected sentence: sometimes collective nouns accept plural references when the collective noun is in the interest of many individuals and not of the group as a whole. Whereas a non-essential sentence usually begins with a relative pronoun (who, who, who or where), does not do so in a sentence known as appositive. An appositive has the same purpose as a non-essential set, but an apositive does not contain a verb.

Here is a sentence with the appositive in the impression of fat: now that the subject is right in front of the verb, the subject-verb conformity error is much more obvious. The strategy consists of three stages: as written, the problem in the choice is the lack of coherence between the subject of the dependent clause and its verb. The subject of the clause is “judgment” and the verb is “differ”. As a singular subject, “judgment” requires a “-s” as the ending of the verb. But don`t make that change! The author confronts a certain number of judgments, it is better to make the subject plural, which makes the subject and the verb correspond. In this article, we will delve into the entertaining world of the subject-verb agreement on ACT. Subject-verb correspondence questions in ACT English are less frequent than punctuation questions; However, you can count on at least some subject-verb matches in your ACT-English section, so understanding this grammatical rule can easily help you improve your ACT-English score. The verb in such constructions is obvious or is. However, the subject does not come before the verb. This rule may seem quite simple; But of course, the ACT doesn`t want to make life too easy for you. Subject-verb compliance issues with the ACT can be a challenge.

Sentences will be more complex than those mentioned above, and subject-verb concordance errors won`t be so obvious. Both sentence subjects and clause subjects must match their verbs. For each underlined verb, look for the noun for that specific verb. Then determine if this subject is singular or plural, and make sure that the subject and the verb match. The original word choice is the only substantive verb coupling that correctly pairs the singular “type” with the underlined part. Remember: all associated nouns in a noun or clause must match, either singular or plural….
